Gurevich Fine Art is pleased to announce that Canadian painter Shelley Vanderbyl has joined the gallery. Inspired and delightful, Vanderbyl’s miniature oil series, Memory Tales will be a featured element of Gurevich Fine Art’s exhibit, A Celebration of Women’s Art openingFriday, September 5th.   

Vanderbyl’s core intention is to heal and nurture through her work. Using precise layering techniques her pieces create soft, atmospheric spaces. The tiny portals beckon the viewer into the depth of each classic fairy tale and rhyme. Highlighting nostalgic stories such as The Princess and The Pea, The Ugly Duckling and Baa Baa Black Sheep her work is timelessness and otherworldly.

“I paint to release the beauty trapped beneath the surfaces of life,” explains Vanderbyl. “Society has built for itself a sterile and efficient system that seems to celebrate productivity where there could be potential for great joy and meaningful connection. We often find ourselves in soulless places, starved for something life-giving. This is my life’s work, to heal and to inspire.”

Vanderbyl captures the fancy of audiences and collectors from around the world. She has appeared on CTV Morning Live, Breakfast Television, UMFM Radio, Shaw Television, and has been highlighted in major newspapers across Canada.

A Celebration of Women’s Art will be on display at Gurevich Fine Art fromSeptember 5th to 27th. The exhibit features the work of 22 women artists in association with Mentoring Art’s for Women’s Art (MAWA) and Video Pool Media Arts Center.
